|Sample tablet bag|
Every year the host city for Quilt Canada chooses a gift and local guilds from Atlantic Canada all the way to the West Coast use the given pattern to make the item and then send them along to the host city. These efforts are hugely appreciated by the host city and then afterwards by the lucky recipients of the gifts. On average, 200 of these gifts are given out every year. That means that quilters Canada-wide donate their time and materials to make 200 of whatever the chosen item is. This speaks to the amazing generosity of the quilting spirit. Many are donated by people who are not able to attend the conference, but wish to still do their part.
